The Young And The Restless (Y&R) scoop reveals Don Diamont will be be back in Genoa City during the week of February 8, according to Soap Opera Digest.
Bold And The Beautiful (B&B) fans know him as Dollar Bill Spencer, publishing magnate and CEO of Spencer Publications. There were some hints that Bill might be an integral part of the Y&R and B&B crossover storyline when he met with Summer Newman (Hunter King) while she was in LA.
As Y&R fans know, Diamont appeared on the soap for more than 20 years as Brad Carlton, right up until Brad’s tragic death in 2009. So even he was surprised that he would return to Genoa City.
Young And The Restless News – Don Diamont Was Surprised To Part Of The Crossover
“I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Young & Restless,” he told SOD. “It wasn’t like I was on for three months. I had never even considered that possibility, so it just kind of took me by surprise when they asked.”

Brad met his untimely demise when he jumped into a freezing cold lake. He pulled out Noah Newman (Robert Adamson), who’d fallen in. His gesture ended up saving Noah’s life and he died a hero.
It wasn’t long after that B&B Executive Producer Bradley Bell scooped him up. Bell created a brand new character for Diamont and fans would agree he’s made Dollar Bill his own.
